Description
Now only virtual key code is used for the dead key detection on Windows. 
This does not cover cases where key modifiers are used for the dead key.
For example the Ctrl+Alt+2 (or AltGr+2) key combination is used for the Caron dead key  in the Hungarian keyboard.

To test the issue add the Hungarian keyboard, type <Ctrl+Alt+2> and see that the   KeyEvent has VK_DEAD_CARON keyCode in the KeyEvent  in the keyPressed/keyReleased methods from the KeyListener
